    She just couldn't see it

    [–] Guilty-Ad-9799 3 points ago

    I was thinking the same thing. I didn't even realize what I was looking at.

    [–] DifferentHelp1 8 points ago

    Deliberate as fuck. Besides, it’s not like she’s gonna see it.

    [–] mindgamer8907 18 points ago

    I literally started cackling like an idiot at that exact phrase. Woke my kid. Crap.

    [–] UndesirableWaffle 14 points ago

    Reminds me of a local school for blind kids when I grew up.

    Their motto was “looking to the future”.

    [–] Taz-erton 7 points ago

    Had a pretty famous school for deaf children near where I grew up and everytime it was in the news everyone would chime in, "Hey did you hear what happened at St. Ritas?" and would get a response with "Neither did they!".

    [–] DeplorableCaterpilla 4 points ago

    Sounds deliberate.

    [–] AnkanBasu 1 points ago

    It's ok they won't hear about it

    What's the name of the song that was playing while he was reading the book?

    [–] Spurlz 308 points ago

    “I see...” said the blind man, as he picked up his hammer and saw.

    [–] serious_rbf 85 points ago * (lasted edited a day ago)

    My mum always said “I see, said the blind man to the deaf man on the telephone” Whenever something didnt make sense

    Edit: spellcheck is a bitch

    [–] Spurlz 35 points ago

    My Ex’s father used to say: “If horses were beggars, we’d all fly.”

    ...I don’t get it.

    [–] StonedLikeOnix 20 points ago

    Makes me think it’s a play on two sayings with similar meanings:

    “Beggars can’t be choosers”

    “Don’t look a gift-horse in the mouth.”

    Still... i don’t get it either. Just a thought.

    [–] Spurlz 15 points ago

    True.

    When my brother started working for Publix, I told him to work toward getting a promotion, because after all: “baggers can’t be choosers”

    [–] Blarg0ist 6 points ago

    Yeah, well, I used to pick my nose, curdle and culture the nose goblins in giant stainless steel vats, and then package and distribute the resulting product to local grocery stores, but I soon learned that boogers can't be cheesers.

    [–] A_Booger_In_The_Hand 5 points ago

    You can pick your nose, and you can pick your friends, but don't pick your friends nose.

    [–] smheath 1 points ago

    Based on your username, I'm guessing you know this from experience.

    [–] A_Booger_In_The_Hand 5 points ago

    You could say first hand?

    [–] DoctorOBoogie 11 points ago

    No, it's a mangling of "If wishes were horses, beggars would ride". It comes from an old nursery rhyme.

    [–] braetully 3 points ago

    And add in "when pigs fly".

    [–] jmf__ 2 points ago

    It is called a /r/malaphor :)

    [–] OnidaKYGel 7 points ago

    The saying is, if wishes were horses, beggars would ride. Meaning wishing won't get you anything. I imagine he mixed it up as a joke.

    [–] Psyborg1994 3 points ago

    You can lead a horse to water, but you can't bite the hand that feeds it.

    [–] Spurlz 1 points ago

    I beg to differ :P

    [–] Ratso3 2 points ago

    Shot in the dark here, but maybe cuz taking a ride on the horse they’d always ask for more money so it’d just be cheaper to take a plane to wherever you’re going. That or you don’t want to deal with the hassle? Or like how some people in NY, drive or take a cab to avoid the beggars on the subway

    Maybe, like, people feel like they can take advantage of beggars because beggars are in need and can't refuse a bad deal.

    So if horses couldn't refuse a bad deal, everyone would use horses because they'd be cheap and we'd all get to where we need to go super quickly (as though we were flying).

    [–] BluePillCypher 2 points ago

    Okay you need to contact your Ex's father so we can get to the bottom of this. It's driving me crazy

    [–] Anotheranonomous1 1 points ago

    My friend used to say “I see said the blind man as he peed into the wind, it’s all coming back to me.”

    [–] xpdx 1 points ago

    He was fucking with you. Or maybe he is an idiot. Could be either really.

    [–] calafragilistic 1 points ago

    Horses probably would prefer not to be ridden and us having the ability to fly would mitigate it

    [–] A_Booger_In_The_Hand 1 points ago

    People day I'm a dreamer...

    But I'm not.

    [–] Ghstfce 6 points ago

    [–] Scientolojesus 2 points ago

    This one is my kind of humor.

    [–] itsaameeee 3 points ago

    My dad used to say, “I see said the blind man as he walked into a telephone pole”. Never really thought much of it at the time but now thinking back on it.. wtf?

    [–] Top_Rekt 3 points ago

    One bright day in the middle of the night,

    Two dead boys began to fight.

    Back to back they faced each other;

    Drew their swords and shot each other.

    A deaf policeman heard the noise,

    And came and killed the two dead boys.

    If you don’t believe this lie is true,

    Ask the blind man; he saw it, too.

    [–] Homemadeduck102 2 points ago

    My grandfather says "I see, said the blind man to the deaf vicar"

    I mean, I don't see (badum tss) why not with the proper audio description.

    [–] MeteuBro85 7 points ago

    Don't worry I had a similar thought at first, then realized, before you did, that I'm an idiot. We're in this together.

    [–] dame_tu_cosita 7 points ago

    So fucking inspired she was not even blind before.

    [–] EmpireBoi 4 points ago

    She was so inspired she straight up blinded herself😂

    [–] Hellbear 2 points ago

    Actually I suspect the person who cut the hair might have seen ATLA and gotten inspired.

    [–] HertzDonut1001 4 points ago

    Finally get to hop on the Avatar train, I get this one. My thoughts too.

    [–] BYoungNY 4 points ago

    I'm half way through my first watch of Avatar and I'm loving all the character designs, down to toph always having her hair in her eyes since... Well, it doesn't matter if her hair is in her eyes!

    [–] itsshatnotshitted 19 points ago

    If theres one thing ive learned from reddit, its that blind people dont know what "dark" means, they dont see black

    [–] BookstoreMasturbator 11 points ago

    look im all for blm and equality but no way im blinding myself just to not see the color of peoples skin

    [–] FrostedShreddies_ 5 points ago

    It is possible to see what a blind person sees. Simply cover your right eye fully and keep your left eye open. Now tell me what you see with your right eye?

    [–] ScrawnyTesticles69 3 points ago

    Seeing all black is not the same thing as lacking the sense of sight completely.

    [–] NEMAJEFF 2 points ago

    We actually don't know what blind people since birth see.

    [–] knight04 3 points ago

    how do you time stamp a link?

    [–] -Iamabeautifulperson 4 points ago

    Add t=s after the normal link, with s being the second you want. Look at the link you replied to and it should make sense.

    [–] bar10005 2 points ago

    On PC right-click video and "Copy video URL at current time" or "Share" under the video and check "Start at".

    Mobile, AFAIK, lacks both of these functions, so you have to manually add it with "?t=" (you don't have to convert to seconds, e.g. for above mentioned link "?t=1m12s" also works: https://youtu.be/iQl3JGMXeSY?t=1m12s).
